#MondayBySlack + Our 10 Favorite Apps for Marketers

marketing

Today our Nashville team got to attend an amazing event called Best Monday Ever hosted by Slack. Slack is one of our favorite apps and has changed the way we communicate as a company. Essentially, the app allows you to streamline all of your team’s communication into one place. We love being able to see what everyone is working on and easily collaborate.

#MondayBySlack is an event the company hosts in different cities throughout the country. They handed out free bagels, coffee, and of course, swag. And because it just so happened to also be #NationalCookieDay, everyone got a box of delicious cookies to take back to the office. There was an awesome jazz band playing in the courtyard, and even a professional head shots truck if you needed to update that awkward LinkedIn photo you’ve been meaning to do something about. The energy was great and it was a perfect way to start the week. Side note: our team was low key obsessed with those bagels.

Slack is one of the many tools we have in our toolbox to keep our business streamlined and organized. Here’s our to 10 favorite apps for productivity:

10 Favorite Productivity Apps for Marketers

1. Evernote

apps for marketers

Evernote is an excellent free note taking app. Personally, I use this one on a daily business for jotting down ideas, writing down things I’m likely to forget, creating lists, and snapping photos. If you’re tired of your laptop being covered in peeling yellow sticky notes, this app will change your life!

 

2. Buffer

apps for marketers

If your business has a presence on multiple social media channels it can be a headache to manage all of them. Buffer is a great tool for scheduling posts and content across all of your channels at the same time.  Plus, you can check your analytics on the go and see which posts are performing the best.

3. Trello

apps for marketers

Trello  is a task management app that lets you organize and sort your projects into “buckets”. It’s good for teams managing  multiple projects. Also, it’s pretty fun!

 

 

4. Google AdWords

apps for marketers The Google AdWords app is an awesome tool for keeping track of your ad campaigns on the go. The app shows you how many people are being shown your ads and how many are actually clicking. You can also use it to adjust your budget and see what’s working and whats not.

 

 

5. Forge

apps for marketers

If you’re in the graphic design industry, Forge is a super cool brainstorming and storyboard app. The app allows you to draw and sketch your ideas and organize them into cards or story boards. It’s kind of a like a visual note taking app. Pretty handy for all your right brain-ers.

6. Google My Business

apps for marketers

This app is handy for updating and adjusting your businesses listing on Google. You can share updates or specials as well. The app allows you to instantly respond to reviews left by customers or update your operating hours.

7. Pocket

apps for marketers

The Pocket app is another one of my personal favorites. Pocket allows you to save articles, videos, and links for later viewing. The best part of this app is you don’t need an internet connection to view anything in your “pocket”.  No more long boring flights! Hurrah!

8. Expensify

apps for marketers

If you struggle to keep track of receipts and hate waiting weeks for reimbursement checks, this app is a game changer. Expensify lets you scan receipts with one click and once approved, receive reimbursement within 24 hours.  You can throw away your shoe box of coffee receipts now, we won’t tell your boss.

 

9. Burner

apps for marketers

Burner will provide you with an alternate phone number for sending and receiving calls, texts, and photos.  Most of us have made the mistake of giving our personal phone number to clients only to have our phones ringing off the dang hook all hours of the day and night. This app helps you maintain a little healthier work life balance. It could also help you if you were say, working on some top secret intelligence project for the government and needed to remain anonymous. Just saying.

 

10. Mail Chimp

apps for marketers
And last but not least! MailChimp is a powerhouse of an email marketing app. MailChimp has a beautifully designed user interface and makes creating email marketing campaigns on the go a breeze. You can also view a pretty detailed report on how well your campaigns are performing. Pretty neat!
